How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil; bake at 350° for 15 minutes. While tortillas bake, coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, cilantro, and jalapeño; sauté until onion is tender. Add chicken and 1 can enchilada sauce; cook 5 minutes.

Step 3

Spoon chicken mixture evenly down centers of tortillas. Roll up tortillas; place, seam sides down, in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Heat remaining 2 cans enchilada sauce in a saucepan; pour over enchiladas, and top with cheese. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until enchiladas are thoroughly heated and cheese melts. Sprinkle evenly with tomato and olives. Serve over lettuce.

Original Chicken Enchiladas

what happened to the original enchilada recipe where you add the cooked chicken, sour cream, shredded cheese and green chiles, and then mix and then put in flour tortillas and pour enchilada sauce over and bake?

these were great and easy! added a couple cloves of garlic to the jalepeno/onion mix, added a dash of ground red pepper to the chicken mixture to spice it up, and added a dash of hot sauce to the enchilada sauce to spice it up even more! delicious. best and easiest enchilada recipe i've found on here.

I made these tonight and my husband told me they were delicious. I liked them as well, but they could have used a little kick. I will definitely be making these again.

This was great! I'm trying to encourage my family to eat healthy and this was a great start! Even my Dad, who likes nothing, liked it! We will definitely make this again!
